Does Rasicm still exist?
It is nieve to think that rasicm does not exist. Rascim is embedded in every single person. Though many people find that there are more importent things in a person than skin color, some people cannot see past it. Plus, this country has become so politically correct that anything that resemblems anything insulting. So yea it does still exist but it is more ley key then it used to be.

Many tribes deep in the amazon have elders that have reportedly seen live giant lizards described like our "long neck". . There have been enough sightings of unusually large creatures through the years to raise the question of whether or not dinosaurs still exist. For scientific purposes, however, …it seems the dinosaurs' closest living reptile is not the crocodile, as many imagine, but in fact the tuatara of New Zealand. (MORE)

No. The globe theater was destroyed in the fire of 1613. It was rebuild but closed at 1642. There is a modern globe theater reconstructed in 1997.
Alas, there is no strong evidence for the existence of fairies. The most famous evidence was the Cottingley photographs which were championed by Arthur Conan Doyle. These were taken in the early 1920s by two young girls. In 1981, they finally confessed that they had faked the photographs. They said …they didn't want to admit they had faked them because it would make Conan Doyle look foolish. Another View One day when I was at home I saw these sparkling lights flying all over my back yard, but they weren't fireflies because fire flies don't glow a pinkish red glow and FIREFLIES DON'T HAVE HUMAN FACES so that proves they are real! Another View Belief in fairies harms no one, not even the believer. (MORE)
Racism is the act of discrimination against people of different ethnicity, race, religion, etc. but most commonly used for race.
Yes it does. It is simply not very common anymore in the western world where we have widespread vaccines against it. But it is still a big threat in less developed countries.
Samurai do not exist anymore. they used to exist in old centuries to fight army in japan. by the way samurai used to exist in japan only
Yes. Many people want to repeal it. For example, white males are becoming the new minority and many people who do not fall in the minority category feel that minorities have an unfair advantage over them. There is nothing to "repeal" since no legislature ever enacted an AA STATUTE, it is only a …presidential Executive Order (EO 11246). Any President could end AA tomorrow with a new EO and no legislature or court could reverse him. AA is still imposed on larger employers as a temporary remedy for proven discrimination. "AA plans" in fed funded contracts require workforce analysis,. but can never require race-conscious or sex-conscious hiring in violation of Title VII, a statute enacted by Congress. White males were never a majority in the population, and still are not. Males are half the workforce and whites are about 80% of the workforce, so we expect WM to be 40%. ALL other race-sex segments are smaller, and NONE is a majority of the workforce or population. (MORE)
That is actually a sensible question-- many countries in that region of the world changed their names when the Soviet Union broke up. But Hungary is one country that not only still exists; it still has its same name. Hungary's best known city is Budapest, and it remains a popular attraction for Euro…pean tourists. (MORE)
There are about 1,038 British Baronies. There is no longer a feudal connotation and increasingly less and less association with the land/area. For example, Baron Boston, although named after Boston, Lincolnshire, has the family seat in Hedsor, Bucks.
The Triple Entente was a military alliance that existed during WW I, between England, France, and Russia. It has not existed for quite a long time.
In the most modern sense, yes, Britain still retains 14 separate territories outside the United Kingdom. And there is also the separate entity of the Commonwealth of Nations, which, although, is not political per say the nations in it still recognize Queen Elizabeth II as the Head of the Commonwealt…h, and in many cases she is still their monarch and head of state. In that extent the empire survives. However, oddly enough the nation that has something closest to a colonial empire is The United States of America, who has sovereignty over Puerto Rico (and does not afford them a vote in US Presidential elections, which is much the same relationship as England had with America before the American Revolution). America also owns, American Virgin Islands, Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands as well as countless other island chains, and lastly the territories not connected to the main 50 states: Hawaii and Alaska. Another Answer: Yes and no. The British Empire reached its peak in 1922, ruling over 1/6th of people living and owning almost 1/4 of the world's land. There is not a date when the Empire ended, so I have provided a timeline of the fall of the Empire for you so you can make your own decision, as even historians argue about when the Empire ended. There are 5 large points in the downfall of the Empire that you can look at to see when and if the Empire ended. 1947-1948: India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Burma, Ireland, and Palestine leave the Empire. Soon after the term "Empire" became obsolete, with the more politically correct term "commonwealth" taking its place. 1957-1966: All of the UK's holdings in Africa (with the exception of Zimbabwe), the Middle East, South America and most of the territories in the Caribbean become independent. Within 9 years the Empire had been almost totally dissolved. 1980/81: Belize and Zimbabwe become independent, the few remaining colonies are renamed "British Dependent Territories". 1982: The British strength is put to the test again, when Argentina attempts to invade the Falkland Islands. 1997: The last large British territory, Hong Kong, is ceded to China. In closing, whether or not the Empire still exists is highly debated. Fourteen British Overseas territories exist (Gibraltar, Akriotori & Dhekelia, British Indian Ocean Territory, Saint Helena & the Ascension Islands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, British Antarctic Territory, Falkland Islands, Pitcarin, the Turks & Caicos, Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Montserrat and Anguilla), with only 667,000 square miles of land and only 260,000 citizens. Of these territories, three are claimed by other countries as well. Some relics of the British Empire live on as well (one of the highest medals and decorations awarded by the Queen is The Order of the British Empire), even though the term "empire" hasn't regularly been used by the British for over fifty years.

Maltese tigers may exist, because they are very likely to have been born to regular orange or white tigers.
Yes. Many reptiles can swim. Most snakes and lizards are goodswimmers and crocodiles and alligators spend much of their time inthe water. There are many species of aquatic turtle as well. Seaturtles only leave the water to lay eggs and sea snakes cannotevent move on land.
It does, but by a different name. One of which I'm not sure of. Sorry(:
I do believe they do. I saw on TV that they found a tooth that was only 70 years old and the Megaladon went Extinct million years ago!!
Yes, poverty still exists around the world with billions of people still living in poverty.
Jehovah's Witneses exist because millions of people see the Jehovah's Witnesses religion as being the most acceptable way to worship. They have found satisfying answers to questions such as "Why does God permit wickedness?", "What happens at death?", "What is the purpose of life?"....and an internat…ional brotherhood that has shown love for their fellowman and each other in a world sourly short of this quality.

Lycans and Vampires are not real. They are just fictional creatures made by people for literature or for some to keep their children home at night. There is no proof of them living or if they lived.

Mass-marketing is very much alive and well-- well, maybe not as lucrative as in previous decades, but still one of the biggest driving forces for sales of products and services besides the use of Internet Marketing. At least half of the "junk mail" every household receives are related to marketing …aimed at current customers. The other half received are a pellet-gun type of mass marketing, that is, fire in a wide spread and hope you 'hit' one new customer. Some big examples of blind mass marketing are sales pitches via mail to : . new parents for child's "term life insurance" . anyone of an elderly age to join one of the biggest "older adult" organizations in the USA . anyone of an elderly age who receives Medicare to sign up for Prescription D prescription coverage . persons of any age to buy satellite TV services . persons of any age to buy cell phone services Anytime mail is addressed to "Resident", it is likely part of a mass-marketing sales pitch. The mail is sent bulk rate, another clue of a mass-marketing campaign. Even if only a few thousand reply and become customers, the advertising dollars were well-spent. On a local level, private citizens engage in mass-marketing when they canvass whole neighborhoods with flyers advertising anything from babysitting services, house painting, or general handyman services.

That depends which paradise you are referring to. In Genesis Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Though we cannot know for sure where it was, we know the rough location of it. God destroyed this garden when Adam and Eve sinned and ate from the tree that God told them not to. Now if you are talk…ing about Heaven, it will always exist. But a time will come when you can no longer get into it if you have not already believed on the Lord Jesus Christ. But Heaven is eternal just like God is eternal. One of the two thieves on the cross next to Jesus' cross, asked Him: "Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom," to whom He replied, "Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise." Luke 23:42,43. Paul equated Paradise in 2 Corinthians 12:2-4 with Heaven. The final paradise of Heaven will never pass away. Those, who have trusted in Christ as their Savior from sin's penalty, will experience that eternal place. (MORE)
The ANZUS teaty is still in force, though NZ refusal to let US nuclear-armed ships visit its ports, caused a dust-up. Apparently the treaty is still continuing. Note the East Timor conflict which was helped by all three nations.

The jury is still out that cannibalism as a ritual practice exists at all - or ever existed (as opposed to that practiced under conditions of starvation or perversion). Although much folklore abounds, no credible sighting of cannibalism by anthropologists exist. As the late Scientific American w…riter, Martin Gardner noted in his book Did Adam and Eve Have Navels? Debunking Pseudoscience , that the sceptical case for why cannibalism is rare to non-existent, and rather something which emerges from the imaginations of ethnographers and archaeologists, or is rooted in scurrilous insults hurled between ethnic groups which have antagonistic relationships. He cites a 1979 book by William Arens entitled The Man-Eating Myth opened up the issue with a strong argument in favour of the belief that cannibalism has never been prevalent in any culture. Gardner notes that claims of institutionalized cannibalism have always been made by enemies, never the tribes themselves, and have usually proven hard to follow up. He refrains from taking sides but admits "My sympathies at the moment are with Arens." (MORE)
Assuming that "real" music is defined as music derived from one's soul, then yes, it is possible to find music fueled by emotion. However, one must be able to see past what entertainment corporations push as "music." A good example of real music is improvisational music.
Yes, the plague does still pop up every so often in small animals. When that happens authorities kill the animals and check for more cases. They often isolate the area just for safety.
Yes, their current tribal location is in and around DurrantOklahoma; although tribal members live everywhere (more or less).
Light from stars takes perhaps millions of years to reach Earth. The stars we see know is how they were millions of years ago.

Strictly speaking, a "phobia" is irrational -- it doesn't need a reason. That said, homophobia exists for a lot of reasons. The first is most obviously, religion. Though many religious believers are open to homosexuality and bisexuality, most people who consider themselves religious people are clo…se-minded. Unfortunately, that old saying about empty barrels making the most noise is still true. Of course, not all homophobes are religious. Some are taught to hate gays by their families and simply have it drilled deep in their memories. This is also related to homophobia in the media and pop culture. Many people might not even notice homophobic slurs in media. But they are almost always there. This subconsciously gives a viewer or listener the idea that being anything other than straight is wrong, embarrassing or otherwise worthy of hatred or ridicule. These messages can be sent out as casually as having two male characters not want to hug, or make fun of one another if they see the other naked in a locker room or washroom setting. These messages are probably the largest reason that homophobia still exists in our society. I take heart from an observation made many years ago by a columnist whose name I've forgotten: the closer we get to eliminating something like racism or homophobia, the louder the battle becomes and the more desperate -- and irrational -- the forces of hatred become.

Sure, they are called Political gossip columnists. a more serious, deep-raking- type would surely be personified by Ralph Nader. Curiously, Mr. Nader has never held any political office. originally he was pro-nuclear energy but after Three Mile Island, shifted the control rods.
